WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. military has conducted a flight test of a type of missile banned for more than 30 years by a treaty that both the United States and Russia abandoned this month, the Pentagon said.

The test off the coast of California on Sunday marked the resumption of an arms competition that some analysts worry could increase U.S.-Russian tensions. The Trump administration has said it remains interested in useful arms control but questions Moscow's willingness to adhere to its treaty commitments.

The Pentagon said it tested a modified ground-launched version of a Navy Tomahawk cruise missile, which was launched from San Nicolas Island and accurately struck its target after flying more than 500 kilometers (310 miles). The missile was armed with a conventional, not nuclear, warhead.

So why is the military wanting to break the treaty?

? Treaty is already broken. Besides, this particular test cannot increase tensions since they are already escalated past this point. As for military - generals are always happy to split profits with arms suppliers Nothing personal, just business as usual. Think about it: new class of previously banned missiles smells like another $100bln in profits, even if they would never actually work . Nobody can resist such the temptation...

If you are in a treaty with "whomever" and the "whomever" breaks that treaty, are you still in a treaty?

Another example of DOD contractors needing to sell the "next" thing. It amazes me that all the pro-military folks don't realize that the lion share of the money goes to Lockheed or Martin Marietta for a lot of junk.

You posted the question as to why the military wants to break the treaty that's already broken. It's ALREADY BROKEN.

The MILITARY... I never mentioned Trump, does your arm hurt for all the overreacting you seem to be doing tonight? Might want to see a doctor about it.
